Mother’s Day is almost here and most people will be buying her gifts today, but there are two things that might please her this year, which involves plenty of reading and a camera that has built-in photo-sharing capabilities.
This where the Samsung DV300F Wi-Fi Dual LCD Smart Camera comes in for the price of $199. There’s no doubt that moms love taking pictures — lots and lots of them — and they want to share them on Facebook right away. As long as you’re connected to Wi-Fi, whether it’s at a Starbucks, a hotel or your own home, you can share.
If you’re the type of parent who makes silly faces and causes no end of embarrassment trying to get your child’s attention, you’ll enjoy the animation feature that pops up on the front screen of this dual-screen camera. Set it off and your child is guaranteed to look right at the camera when you want. No more staring off in the wrong direction.
This is a 16-megapixel camera with an 18x zoom. It comes in black, red and silver. The self-portrait mode powers up the screen on the front for a perfectly-framed shot of the family, or you with that celeb you just caught passing by.
The next gift for mom is the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight for $139. This is Barnes and Noble’s lightweight E Ink e-reader with a built-in light. Not an external one that attaches to the outside, this one is made from patent-pending technology that lights the page just enough for you to see in the dark.
It’s adjustable so you can turn it up or down, depending on how much light you need. It’s incredibly easy on the eyes, and, since the infrared touch screen has built-in anti-glare technology, this is one e-reader that can perform out by the pool as well as in the bedroom.
With over 2.5 million titles to choose from and the ability to lend a book to a fellow Nook user, plus a battery that will last a month, this is a gift a book-loving Mom can use easily.
